Serein

Based in Wales, Serein is a record label founded in October of 2005 as a venture to promote artists and their work online. The label's output was originally made available to download for free, but in the interest of continued growth, a decision was made in early 2009 to explore some carefully considered commercial avenues.

Nest is the collaborative project of Otto Totland (Deaf Center / Type Records) and Huw Roberts (Serein). The two started working together after forging a strong friendship as former members of the Miasmah label. This self-titled EP is their first work publicly released, so it is a great honour that we are able to offer it to you here. Both pianists, there is little wonder that after exploring a plethora of musical styles, the two find themselves most at home writing traditionally structured...

For the seventh release at Serein we are graced with an EP from renowned Berlin composer, Marcel Tuerkowsky. Marcel had previously contributed a composition to the 'Tracks in the Snow' compilation, so it is with great pleasure that we welcome him back. This is a collection of work restored from analog tape, dubbed the 'lost tapes' which he has revived for us to hear. The pieces were written after dark and have a peaceful, introspective quality to which "Night Tapes" kindly lends its...

It is with great pleasure that we bring you the first release at Serein, by Canadian artist Muhr. Five tracks in all comprising sampled instrumentation, field recordings and carefully layered sound synthesis. A conceptual follow up to his release at Miasmah, Muhr has once again managed to deliver a beautifully sparse and organic sound that is becoming very much his own. We look forward to hearing more from him in the near future!

Number fourteen at Serein marks the most welcome return of Muhr, the man responsible for the first release in the Serein catalog many moons ago. Whilst Muhr has contributed many tracks to other labels in the interim, we're honoured to present his latest offering, which may be his most confident effort yet. Poussiere (meaning 'dust') is very much a development of a sound Muhr has been exploring for some time, the undercurrents of previous offerings are present (notably 'we are desolved' and 'la...

Unknown Language is the debut release by South London based 'The Inventors of Aircraft'. A name which might suggest multiple members, but which is in fact the sole invention of one Phil Tomsett. I first became aware of the IOA after receiving a short selection of tracks to listen to. I was hooked. I asked Phil to write some more pieces with a view to releasing a full length album, he obliged, and 'Unknown Language' was born. As you will have doubtless gathered, the title bears some signifigance...

As promised, here is the long awaited EP on Serein from Portugese artist, OCP. Those of you with a good memory will remember the contribution he made to the 'Tracks in the Snow' compilation at the beginning of the year, we've been eager to release more of his work and are now pleased to present you with 'Atmos'. This five track EP represents perfectly what OCP is all about, combining elements of ambient and glitch through to the modest sounds of dub techno and stripping it right back to the...

When Stephane told me he had written much of this EP using his own software, that he had collected samples from all over the globe (Brighton, Manchester, New York, Bangkok, Bremen, Berlin...) and that he chose to use only these samples and the analogue instruments he plays to compose the EP, I knew I was in for a treat. Stephane's attention to detail is something which becomes apparent very quickly while listening to his work, rich textures build and evolve effortlessly, the organic and the...

Tapestry is an album of, for want of a better word, 'b-sides'. That is to say, older tracks that Mike (1000 Hours of Staring) has reworked, or which he simply couldn't see fitting elsewhere. Surprising then, that what we have here is a coherent collection of tracks taking us on a skewed journey through carnival atmospheres and crowded city streets, in the latter half of the album Mike favours a more relaxed tone, though this release could certainly be said to contain some of his most raw work...

Michael Trommer is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Toronto, Canada. Prior to landing at Serein, Michael enjoyed releases on a large number of notable labels, both net based and otherwise. In the past he has contributed work to the Thinner netlabel, while more recently Fountain Music have released a split EP by himself and 'Genevieve'. While the aforementioned releases saw him assume his 'Sans Soleil' moniker (a name he reserves for his 4/4 oriented output), Trommer also creates...
